With so many fledgling EDM producers flooding the market with tunes, it’s very difficult for an up-and-comer to stand out amongst all of the chatter. Then, a producer like Dimension comes along, immediately grabs the attention of icons like Andy C, Chase & Status, and Friction, and fast tracks to top of the scene in the blink of an eye. Maybe it’s too soon to coronate Dimension quite yet, but the Londoner is sure to be brushing shoulders with d&b’s top brass on main stages of festivals if he continues his tear through bass music. Already scoring BBC DJ Zane Lowe’s “Next Hype” honors and huge support from the cast at BBC 1xtra, it’s safe to say that the young producer will have an integral part in carrying the d&b movement forward.
The young dynamo recently released a titanic EP on Cyantific Music called Synth City, and it is quite simply required listening for any drum and bass fan. The EP’s title-track is a funky, electro-styled stormer that is writhing with enough energy to power a small town. With a refreshing amount of musicality, this tune is pure, unadulterated dancefloor business. Synth City should keep d&b fans buzzing for hours on end, but also make sure to check out the b-side tune Midnight Love for a little neurofunk flavor. “Funk” is certainly the operative word here, as Midnight Love combines a soulful vocal sample of Mary J Blige’s No More Drama with a throbbing sub-bassline. Both tunes can be purchased right here on Beatport.
